An Infographic On The Current State Of Technology In The Classroom

The current state of technology in the classroom is somewhere between its infancy and bold experimentation.

For every 1:1 tablet program or BYOD-pioneering district, there is a teacher in a poor urban district struggling to get her “smart” board thinking again, or another in a rural district dancing a little dance for his new document camera.

The infographic below illustrates this point by offering statistics on what how many teachers are using what, and how they feel about it all. One interesting stat? 65% of teachers say technology let’s them demonstrate things they could not show any other way. That one makes sense, though I’d think it might be closer to 100%.
